Text description provided by the architects.

The new landmark of Vejle is a distinctive residential building of nine storeys with a magnificent location by the bay Skyttehushugten and Vejle Fjord.
With its five characteristic wave crests, the Wave in Vejle stands out as a sculptural icon both respecting and challenging its location.
Architecturally, the building relates to its fantastic location by Vejle Fjord.

In daytime, the building will be characterized by the soft movements of the waves reflected in the water surface of the fjord.
At night, the characteristic profile of the Wave will appear as an undulating mountain landscape of light and color.
The building comprises 100 attractive flats – many of which are in two levels.

The layout of the flats ensures a splendid view from all balconies.
Together with the public promenade in front of the building, the Wave creates a beautiful connection between the fjord, landscape and town and consolidates the different elements in a clear and recognizable signature..
